    The battery life is good because the software is made for the hardware and same for performance. The extra that you pay to apple is because of the software, if you are going to put linux don't expect it to behave like a macbook in terms of everything.
    Don't tell people to do this, that's a wast of money.

    The content of the video was good and that's the thing that matter. Sure you can disagree with what he said, but he gather information pass it to others.

    To be honest in tildes you don't see the thumbnail so if you click on the video it was not that make you click.

    I like the idea of putting gitea on an hidden service even if I am not going to use I would like to learn how to do it.

    I understand about the possibility of having a failure but look at the services I am going to run, if they stop working is not a biggy.
    All I need to backup is the share, confg files and the gitea database.I understand all of that, if I was running a business.
    Maybe is good idea to backup to the cloud like others have said.

    The node of cryptocurrency on the cloud defeat the purpose of decentralization and I want to support the network.

    I can give it a try I guess, but the hard part is not convincing me, but the people I play with.

    Nice to hear about the CPU, 1600 is more or less a i5.
    I am going to backup locally, less money long term and more secure in a way.

    What normally they do is limiting my traffic speed at the most, I will have to motorize the network to see if they do that. And if they do... well, I really doubt a call to them will change anything XD.
    Normally when a football game is played the ISP throttle the streaming services. Nothing happens to them, some laws exist just to be written and read not used.

    Edit: Home server are not worth it, but running nodes in clouds defeat almost all the purpose of being decentralized.

    What do you recommend has OS for the virtualization, promox? Do you recommend a machine for each service? About having multiple machines should I have multiple disks for each virtualization or the SSD disk can handle the read/write of all systems?

    My CPU is a desktop CPU, do you think it can handle all the virtualization? 6 threads not that bad I guess.

    I don't know if redundancy is important in to me(at least for now), I would say backups are more important, if the system stop working I can wait a few days/hours until I have time to fix it.

    Thanks for you insight.
    For the nodes, a full node is different than a miner, I don't intend to have a GPU on the server, only for the initial installation :p.

    The Minecraft part makes sense, probably I will only think about that when all the rest is running and see if it can handle it after.

    When I ask about the disks is because I don't want the disk to be a bottleneck since multiple services would be using it at the same time. Maybe I should search how much the nodes uses the disk and how much space they can have in the future.

    I have edit the point 2(word), if you have any insight about virtualization. The only thing that comes to mind is more secure to have things separated, but don't know if the performance I am going to loose is a good trade.

    Hello,

    I have a few questions. I didn't want to wast money so I wanna use what I have in terms of hardware, only the PSU and storage if needed.

    PC:

    • CPU AMD 5 1600
    • RAM 16G
    • SSD 125 GB for OS

    Services I think of running:

    • Node Tor middle relay
    • Node Bitcoin
    • Node XMR
    • Gitea or Gitlab
    • Maybe some service to host files or make a share for lan or a could service
    • Maybe a TS Server or Minecraft

    Questions:

    1. Do I have enough power to run all of this or I am being to greedy? I have raspberry(not pi 4) stopped at home doing nothing I could run some of this services on them if the computer can't handle everything.
    2. Should I virtualize? Can you explain me your response on this?
    3. I thinking of buying a good PSU since I am running this 24/7, should I invest in gold platinum or something like that?
    4. Should I have multiple disks if yes can you explain how much and for what.

    This is will be my first server at home so I would like to hear tips if you think I am forgetting something.

    Thanks in advance.
    Edit: visualize > virtualize
